BENTON -- Four runners from the Sikeston cross country team won medals at the Kelly Invitational Saturday. Leading the way was Matt Rushing who won the 60 runner junior varsity competition in 19.35 over the 3.1 mile course. Jordan Roberts finished eighth in the same race in 21.05.
In the girls junior varsity competition two freshman from Sikeston finished in the top ten out of the 52 runners to win medalist honors. Those runners were Katie Bloemer who finished seventh and Eryn Pritchard who finished ninth. It was a good showing for the two freshmen with freshman through juniors competing in the junior varsity races.
There were no team results for Sikeston since neither the girls or boys have complete teams.
Sikeston's next competition will be the Cape Central Invitational Saturday Sept. 17th.
